Roll call votes are expected during today’s session.
NOTE: A motion has been filed to reconsider the vote by which the Senate failed to invoke cloture on the spending measure.
A cloture petition has been on the motion to concur in the House message to accompany H.R. 195 with a further amendment (a resolution to continue spending until to February 8, with the CHIP reauthorization).
The amendment tree has been filled.
Unless there is an agreement to the contrary, that vote on that cloture motion would occur one hour after the Senate convenes on Monday.
Filing deadline for first-degree amendments is 1 p.m. on Sunday. The filing deadline for second-degree amendments is one hour prior to the cloture vote, if cloture is invoked.
These measures are currently pending to the measure to continue spending (H.R. 195):
- McConnell perfecting amendment (#1917) of a to change the expiration of the continuing resolution from from February 16 to February 8;
- McConnell motion (#1918) to refer the House message accompanying H.R. 195 with instructions to report back forthwith with an amendment.
